Words from the Heart for Saturday August 15th, 2020
And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.
Genesis 1:10 (NKJV)
Earth and Seas
The Salish Sea is the intricate network of coastal waterways of the Cascadia bioregion that includes the southwestern portion of the Canadian province of British Columbia and the northwestern portion of the U.S. state of Washington. Its major bodies of water are the Strait of Georgia, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, and Puget Sound. Major port cities on the Salish Sea include Vancouver, Seattle, Tacoma, Everett, Bellingham, Port Angeles and Victoria. Much of the coast is part of a megalopolis stretching from West Vancouver, British Columbia, to Olympia, Washington.
If you have ever sailed on a body of water large enough that you can’t see the shore, you get some idea of how immense the oceans are. If you have ever flown across Canada, you get some idea about how much land there is on the planet. The reality is that the vast majority of the planet is water – fully 71%. So much of what we need for life is found in the oceans, seas, lakes and rivers – besides the water itself. On the ground we produce food, and find the minerals the are necessary for health and sustenance. When God created everything, He did so with perfection. Genesis 1:10 says “And God called the dry land Earth, and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas. And God saw that it was good.” No wonder He declared what He done “good.” He created the earth and seas even before He created those who would live on the earth and in the seas. It was all created with love and purpose. Just like you. He created it all knowing that you would be part of all that He has brought into being.
These have been words from the heart.
